The End of the Basketball Season

Cameron Bailes, Writer

The Northland Christian Basketball has had a rough season this year. Through this tough year we have learned a lot about overcoming in tough times, never giving up and always playing our best. No matter what the score at the end of the game, we can know that we will not always be the bigger, better or faster team but we play with more heart and more togetherness. This team is a young, talented group with only 3 seniors on the team and many underclassmen as well as a strong junior class.

This year we expected a lot out of each other, but the weight of the team was too hard to bear for just 2 or 3 people. Some teams that we played we either beat them by 20 others we got beat by 20, but some were so close that it came down to the final minute in which we pulled away in the last seconds. This year has been a rollercoaster ride with many injuries, many tough losses but also many moments to share for a lifetime. When asked about how this season went Junior Guard, Brady Kraner says, “Sure it was a tough season, but we never lost heart and always competed, no matter in game or at practice when we scrimmage, it wasn’t the season we hoped for, but it was the season we got and we will come back next year even stronger than this year”.

With the loss of 3 seniors, it’ll be tough to replace their spots, but with the talent and young group we have it won’t be impossible. This year was indeed a tough season, with losing games here and there, but with the heart that we have, we never gave up and never stopped until the final buzzer sounds in the last game that we play.
